'Momentum is on our side,' Oklahoma teachers union leader declares with strike in ninth dayBy Heidi Brandes OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) – Oklahoma teachers carried their walkout over school funding and higher pay into a ninth day on Tuesday as the Republican party governor signed school revenue bills that fell short of their demands. Schools in the state’s largest cities, Oklahoma City and Tulsa, were shut on Tuesday and planned to close on Wednesday. A non-partisan poll released on Friday showed 72 percent of voters in Oklahoma, where teacher’s pay is near the bottom among U.S. states, supported the walkout.
